The Quick Twist
A classic French twist looks just as appropriate with a sundress as it does with a formal gown. Plus, it’s deceptively simple—even with shorter lengths.
How to: (1) Work a volumizer, such as Redken Thickening Lotion 06 Body Builder ($13, redken.com for salons), through towel-dried hair, then scrape hair back with your fingers to create natural-looking volume. (2) Smooth hair over to one side and secure with several bobby pins down the back of the head (where the center of the twist will lie) in a vertical line. (3) Flip hair to the other side so strands cover the line of pins. Roll and tuck the hair ends under, securing with larger U-shaped pins to hold everything in place.
